Very interesting to enter the residential building and the apartment where Freud lived and worked. Many interesting items on display, but a few things could be handled better, for example the movie room included several really old TVs in the center of the room and 10 chairs around them. 2 TVs did not even work so there was no chance...

Worth it if you are there and not sure what to do, I was there during a psychiatric conference and was happy I managed to see his old practice. Not very much to see. The souvenir shop was nice.

The experience of going to the museum (which is Freud's old apartment) was pretty cool.. ringing the bell, and entering a residential building. While there were definitely good gems in the museum, it was a little overwhelming and even the most general of things weren't described without using the headset. I wish there were a few things highlighted so that... More

To be honest this could have been so very interesting. What was there was good but I think the museum did not reach its potential. The staff were not friendly and were more interested in collecting the entrance fee. It was fantastic to see the rooms and building where Freud lived and worked. The film they show was very poor...

Dear Heather P, we are very sorry you were disappointed. In fact, we are currently working on a new museum concept which keeps up the charm of Freud's era and eliminates the technical difficulties we encounter, so we hope you come back in some time and can give us a better review. During the Easter holidays, the museum can get... More

It was a very disappointing visit and felt like a waste of money. The staff were rude, the audio guide was only set to describe a few items, and the actual exhibit was small and not captivating. The exhibit focused more on fleeing the nazis than on Freud and his work.

Dear D.Houss, we are sorry to read you were disappointed with your visit. Our audio guide delivers a well- planned overview over the Sigmund Freud Museum and its contents. For detailed information, we provide information folders right at the entrance to Sigmund Freud's practise. We are sorry if you did not notice them. The permanent exhibition covers Sigmund Freud's life... More

This is a really interesting museum that provides a good history of Freud alongside some installations. For me it felt a bit on the pricey side but I think if you are very interested and get into the detail you'd probably think it was a bargain so I won't complain.

While traveling I love to feel the atmosphere of the place and people who live and lived in the city. Not a lot of things to see in the museum, but it is interesting to hear the story about one of the most mystic people in the world. Visiting the flat was the reason to start reading his works. It...

It was a very goode experience to know more about Freud's history and personality. However, I think that people responsable for the museum could try to reproduce more of the things Freud's used or had. Many stuff we can only see through pictures, and it can be a little desapointing to some people.

Staying in Serviten Quarter

Neighborhood Profile
Serviten Quarter
The Serviten Quarter is an inner city neighborhood with many private charms. Popular with French and American expats, Sigmund Freud’s neighborhood boasts his former practice and apartments, now turned into a museum. Stunning Liechtenstein Garden Palace houses the private art collection of Prince Adam of Liechtenstein. Romantic Strudlhofstiege close to the palace is a fantastic photo spot. With their small independent shops and eateries, the main streets of Liechtensteinstrasse, Porzellangasse and Servitengasse reveal much of this area’s character. Peek into baroque Serviten Church, with its richly decorated dome and walls. At the Old Jewish cemetery in Seegasse you can see one of the most precious cemeteries in Europe with tombstones almost 500 years old.
